Game Story

TORONTO (Ticker) -- Vince Carter's clutch shot gave the Toronto Raptors a shot at the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference.

Carter's 15-footer from the left side with 7.6 seconds left in overtime gave the playoff-bound Raptors a 94-92 victory over the Detroit Pistons.

The win improved Toronto to 46-35, one game behind the New York Knicks. If the Raptors defeat the Washington Wizards and the Knicks lose to the Pistons on Wednesday, Toronto gets the No. 4 seed -- and home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs.

Carter's shot capped a wild final minute for the Raptors. They trailed 92-89 after a jumper by Detroit's Dana Barros with 2:01 remaining and had a pair of empty possessions. They repeatedly drove and kicked the ball looking for the tying 3-pointer and finally got it from Alvin Williams with 44 seconds to go.

Keon Clark blocked Chucky Atkins' drive at the other end and the Raptors went to a hurting Carter, who had made just 5-of-21 shots to that point but came through when it counted.

"Vince wanted to be out there. He knew this was an important win for us," Raptors coach Lenny Wilkens said. "Down the stretch, I ran two isolation plays for him. He's our best player and I'm going to put the ball in his hands and he delivered. It was great for him to play through the pain."

"This was an important game so I had to play," Carter said. "Before the game, it was my knee. Now it's my hip. Tomorrow is another much-needed game. We still have a much-needed game and we still have a chance for home-court advantage."

Williams stole Atkins' pass and was fouled with three seconds to play. The Raptors inbounded to Chris Childs, who was able to dribble out the clock.

"I considered taking the three but at the last moment, I saw Corliss (Williamson)," Atkins said. "But I threw a bad pass."

"Keon made a big block at the end and Vince made the big shot to put us up," Williams said. "We made the big plays tonight."

Carter scored 21 points for the Raptors, who had six players in double figures and overcame 35.5 percent (33-of-93) shooting to gain a four-game split of the season series with their Great Lakes neighbors.

The Raptors can still drop to sixth in the conference if they lose to the Wizards and the Charlotte Hornets defeat the Boston Celtics.

"I'm not worried about the playoffs until these games are over," Carter said. "There will be two days off and it will be an important two days rest for those with bumps and bruises. It still feels good when you don't shoot the ball well and they still give you the ball."

Ben Wallace grabbed a career-high 28 rebounds for the Pistons, who had won seven of their last nine games. It was Wallace's 10th 20-rebound game of the season and fell one shy of the NBA season high established by Dikembe Mutombo with Atlanta against Toronto on January 31.

"We had every opportunity to win the game," Wallace said. "We missed shots and they converted. All that matters is we keep on going out and playing hard. We have one more game and then I can shut it down."

"Ben Wallace is sensational," Pistons coach George Irvine said. "He got rebounds when everyone else gave up on a play."

Antonio Davis had 16 points and 11 rebounds and Charles Oakley added 15 and 11 for Toronto. Williams had 11 points and 12 assists.

Detroit's Jerry Stackhouse scored 22 points but made just 7-of-25 shots, including 1-of-10 from 3-point range. The NBA's second-leading scorer needs 42 points in the season finale to finish with an average of 30 points per game.

Williamson scored 12 of his 17 points in the first half as Detroit grabbed a 48-44 lead. Toronto rallied for a 68-64 lead entering the fourth quarter.
